We share our unique archives of mass atrocities with our audience, providing a comparative lens on state violence, war, and genocide. Our collections expose
the Massacres of Panzos in Guatemala, El Mozote in El Salvador, Villa Grimaldi in Chile, Chiquita Bananas in Colombia, and the “Flights of Death” in Argentina, to name some of the horrific events that demand public attention. Our archives document the Cold War ideologies of National Security and Development embodied in local, U.S.-trained security forces and counterintelligence operations carried out in the region. By publicizing these silenced connections, we promote a humanist community that bears witness to mass atrocities and defends against them.
Our materials include
- court files containing forensic and ballistic reports
- newspaper articles
- audiovisual materials
